It usually Harrys job in the mornings to feed the chooks and collect the eggs. Today, Darcy wanted to do it, but neglected to tell me until after Harry had already done it! All. Day. Long, she went on and on and on about how *she* had wanted to do it. She drove me bananas!
She went back and forth all day, checking if anymore eggs had been laid, only to come back sad: “No googies, mama! All gone! Nordy chookens!!!”
Finally, late this afternoon, we all went down and (thankfully) one warm egg was waiting for her. Its almost like they squeezed an extra one out just so she would leave them alone!
Thank Gawd, said I.
Hooray! said she.
Then she dropped it on the ground.
